The OP asked (note the added emphasis highlighting the bit that you so carefully omitted from your quote above!):

Is there a CPAN module or something for that sort of task - or do I have to re-invent the wheel?

lwp-mirror exactly answers that query including the bit about not having to reinvent the wheel.

It means he doesn't have to write anything!. He can just use the existing script directly.

What is there about an exactly appropriate answer that you do not understand?

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
